Equipment

Some of the heavy equipment being used to build the Lake Jackson Ecopassage I posted about yesterday. There were a couple more of these parked behind this one.

This is serious equipment, it must be a large scale project. I like the way people of Tallahassee dealing with ecology. So serious, congratulation..

I read somewhere that in the period leading up to World War II a Japanese official in the American West watched the road grading equipment being used in a construction project and marveled at the mechanized way that we build roads in the USA. He filed a report to Tokyo that said that it would be a mistake to go to war with the USA because any country that can build a road in such a sophisticated way should not be disturbed.

Although the USA has lost much of our manufacturing base, we still know how to build roads and highways.

Looks like another lobbyist on his way to Tally today.

We have a couple of those parked near us.

Interesting thing about the ecopassage. I've seen such thing before also in Brazil: dividing a body of water in two in order to have a highway crossing! No words for that... Luckily for new constructions nowadays government and contractors are being more careful and considering environment (this little thing...) in such enterprises.
God bless you!

It sure dose beat digging by hand. Have a nice day, Lois.

A good use for some really heavy machines!

I didn't even know what the ecopassage was until I read Cezar's comment. Now I know.

I often wondered why "they" leave all this equipment out in the elements...

By the way, re: your comment on Ocala DP - I've checked with my sources in Tallahassee and they said you're never at a loss for words! Heh, heh.

That looks fun to drive! There are parks in the UK where you actually can play at driving diggers and tractors.

I agree with Pam - definitely beats using a shovel and pick-axe!

It takes big Tonka toys to do a big job.

How funny, my daughter and I were just talking about Caterpillar equipment today.

Hopefully they have good weather to get the job done. I bet your grandson would enjoy watching them work.
